The purpose of the National Prayer Breakfast is to unite leaders in our capital in order to pray together, build relationships, and seek to walk together in the spirit of Jesus Christ. The National Prayer Breakfast is an annual Christian event and is historically offered under the auspices of the Speaker of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Commons on behalf of the Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast Group.
The National Prayer Breakfast was founded in 1964 as the first national prayer breakfast in the world. 58 years later, Members of Parliament, Senators, and a group of dedicated political staffers volunteer their time to organize the breakfast, a leadership dinner, and a multi-day summit for young Christian leaders from across the country.
This year's National Prayer Breakfast and Leadership dinner will be held in the beautiful Shaw Centre, overlooking downtown Ottawa.
